Double-striped Bluet male

Tiny and very finely marked, this is one of the smallest Bluet species at about an inch long. I wasn't completely sure which species I had until I looked at an image on the camera back since I couldn't get close enough to see the thin blue line running down the black shoulder stripe. Enallagma basidens, Coenagrionidae. Central IL, Spring 2012.
